Greater Self Compassion

in 9 Weeks

Most of us feel compassion when a close friend or loved one is struggling...

What would it be like to receive that same kindness and compassion 
when you need it most?

Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) is an empirically supported course, developed by Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy and Kristin Neff, PhD, a pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion and is designed to help you do just that.

Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) Course

Tricia Stern, LCSW, MPH & Teresa Keller


Research shows that self-compassion is strongly associated with:

emotional wellbeing and resiliency,
better ability to cope with life's challenges,
lower levels of anxiety and depression,
healthy habits such as diet and exercise, &
more satisfying relationships

It is an inner strength that enables us to be more fully human—to acknowledge our shortcomings, learn from them, and make necessary changes with an attitude of kindness and self-respect.
